Orange has released a bunch of APIs into the world and has inked a deal with some Bay Area tech types to help convince developers on the idea of building mobile and web applications using Orange core networks and services.
Apigee’s digital platform will power the APIs for Orange Partner, the telco's biz hub for developers, partners and startups.
Apigee has landed another operator customer in Orange, which will be using the API specialist's technology to expose its network assets to developers and partners, a move it hopes will enable it to launch new network-based services.
Orange hope to create cutting edge apps and services using Apigee to open their APIs to attract the best in developer talent. Apigee provides a developer-friendly layer that allows APIs, code that grants access to each application in a system, to make a company's back end services available online for customer-facing applications and platforms without exposing back end systems.

Everyone and everything seems to be vying for customers’ attention these days.
Attracting and keeping the interest of existing customers -- let alone acquiring new ones -- is tricky for most enterprises.

This makes it particularly important for businesses to be constantly on the look out for new ways to engage and retain their customers.

Digital transformation describes how companies are using technology to add a digital dimension to customer or partner experiences, change the way employees do their jobs, or add new digital or data-based lines of business. These kinds of experiences are no longer just conveniences. They are becoming the de facto standard, and have created strong impetus for businesses who haven’t done so already to start on the path to digital transformation.
